Bertelsmann is a German multinational organization located in Gutersloh, North Rhine-Westphalia, and Germany. It is one of the world's greatest mass media organizations and also engaged in the education and service sector. Bertelsmann was established as a publishing business by Carl Bertelsmann in 1835.
Following World War II, Bertelsmann, under the administration of Reinhard Mohn, went from being an average-sized enterprise to a dominant conglomerate, giving not only books but also music, television, magazines, business, and radio services. Bertelsmann is an unlisted and resources market-oriented firm, which remains principally controlled by the Mohn family.
Since 2016, significant divisions of Bertelsmann are Penguin Random House, the world’s largest book publishing company,
BMG the music publishing company behind artists such as Celine Dion, Britney Spears, Aerosmith, Dj Khaled and of course, the best soft rock band the world has ever seen, Nickelback.
For our European viewers, you might be familiar with the RTL Group, which is another part of Bertelsmann.
This company gives a new meaning to MASS media.
9.SIMPLE Group Limited,
is anything but simple, it is a conglomerate of independently run organizations that each has its focus area in Tax Planning. The core marketing areas are Legal Services, Offshore Banking, Fiduciary Activities, Corporate Service, offshore outsourcing, and Offshore Business Services.
The date of establishment is listed as 1999 by Companies House of Gibraltar, who identify it as a holding company; however, it is recognized that SIMPLE Group's marketing and trading actions date to the secondary part of the 90s, probably as a consolidated body.
SIMPLE Group Limited is a conglomerate that encourages secrecy, they are not registered on any Stock Exchange, and the organization is owned by a complex series of offshore companies and trusts to shield the owners. The Sunday Times declared that SIMPLE Group's advantages could be estimated at £77 million; the stockholders are perceived to be a collection of Swiss Private Banks' owners.
In other words, if you want to hide the $50 your mom gave you for your birthday, get in contact with the SIMPLE guys.They will make sure the grubby hands of the government will never see a penny in taxes.
Also I really don’t buy the 77 million pounds number, I am guessing there is much more money tied up there.

Yes. A SINGLE company is responsible for most of the transport, health, immigration, prison and “citizens” services
Serco runs school investigations, speed cameras all over the UK, and the National Nuclear Laboratory. It's also responsible for the early warning ballistic missile defense systems in the country.
All in all SERCO has 50,000 employees and and operating income of 42 million pounds, it doesn’t seem too big right ? True, but considering how many very important services the company runs, the value of the company changes ten fold.
